I believe in my soul - Ilayaraja Added on Feb 04, 2012 Ilayaraja needs no introduction as everyone knows that he is the legendary musician who scored music for more than 950 films in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi. The Maestro who recently came to Hyderabad for the audio launching function of Prakash Raj’s ‘Dhoni’ (for which he provided the musical scores) said that although he did less number of films in Telugu he gave quality music. According to him, he never scored music as per the directors’ demands, it’s they who prepare scripts to match his music standards. “No one created music, not even the sound. It’s just an art. I believe in my soul.”, he opined about music. About the background score he said, “I do re-recording as per the scenes shot in the film. It all depends on the director’s story and screenplay. I straight away reject if I don’t like the story.” As per him, he did ‘Dhoni’ only because he was impressed with the story of the film.
